Bourbon at the Border

Written by Pearl Cleage
Directed by Andrea J. Dymond
Jan. – Mar. 2, 2002


After months at a mental rehabilitation hospital, Charlie returns home to his wife, May. He gets a job through Tyrone, the boyfriend of Rosa, May’s best friend. Everything seems to be going fine for both of the couples. But it becomes clear that all of Charlie’s problems were not solved during his time away. He must still face the traumatic events in his and May’s past during the civil-rights movement, events that continue to creep into the present.
